. with the secret clearance is there is an f.b.i. check. we get the f.b.i. database and they reveal arrests. it does not reveal the disposition of cases that are handled at the state and local level. and so the f.b.i. record revealed that mr. alexis had been charged and arrested for what was called malicious mischief and under the existing standards, our job or the job of the contractor, in this case, was to go out and find out what the disposition of that charge was and to find out more information about the charge. now, some have questioned now why o.p.m.'s investigators did not go get a police report. well, the reason that a police report was not obtained was because, you know, there were like 1,700 localities, law enforcement jurisdictions. they all have different rules about what they're going to supply to us. in this case, we had experience with seattle. seattle did not provide police reports and they have their own good reasons, i'm sure. but -- so what we were referred to by seattle was the state database. the state of washington, their court records and that's where we went. that revealed t
employees and contractors, including many who work for the c.i.a., the f.b.i., the state department, and the defense department, i know from years of firsthand experience how agencies can sometimes use various forms of pressure and intimidation to keep employees from sharing information of concern with congress. i know the benghazi survivors and other witnesses that night need the protection of a friendly subpoena to compel their testimony before congress, particularly on matters as sensitive as this, in order to protect them. so far the committees have failed to provide this protection to allow survivors and other witnesses, to allow them to share their story publicly so the american people can hear them. based on disclosures in recent news reports, i now believe that the benghazi plot represents a significant intelligence failure by the united states at several levels. understanding these failures as well as the government's inexplicable response during and after the attack, is critical to preventing future attacks. i want to outline a number of apparent intelligence failures lead
legal system like the f.b.i. or whatever that's checking into this extortion? we have been extorted. guest: i don't think we can get john boehner mugshotted by the fbi on charges of extortion but your larger point is right. the tea party folks are a minority of the republican party but yet they are the tail that wags the dog. they do not believe in compromise. i go back to the story i put up this morning about ted cruz's father and the speeches he's given on behalf of his son at tea party republican events and he says we have had enough of compromise. we've had enough of established republicans, we don't want compromise. it seems to me that is not a fair reading of what the founders had in mind when they created our system. they created a system that is hard to pass legislation, a lot of checks and balances, but they did that purposely to make things slow but to force people to come together and work things out in a deliberative fashion. i don't think they envision people misusing the roles or the system to say no and if you don't do this my way, i will blow up the economy with a de
